Rise and shine... we recently made a new rule for breakfast. Must be fruits and oatmeal, yogurt, cereal or eggs. The chocolate pancake/waffle/french toast situation was getting out of hand, so we reserve that for weekends. Needless to say, the girls weren’t thrilled with me!
This will be my only exercise for the day...taking a Sunday 💤
I’m SO proud of this child. She was the lead her camp play, and she sang and danced her heart out! (A few clips on stories) It’s so cool to see her follow her dreams and passion, and to witness her courage and confidence at such a young age. She inspires me everyday. #proudmom #momager
Happy weekend everyone...I’ll be in my backyard, staying off the roads as the traffic is at a standstill... we know who to thank for that!
Wearing my new @oscardelarenta ⭐️ earrings to go see my little STAR sing in her first camp show! #proudmom #odlraccessories
Nothing beats family... these are my people! Scroll
They were so excited for Mommy and Daddy’s “wedding!” Ever since I showed them our wedding album, they asked to have another one so they could come... Here they are, the flower girls they dreamt of being!
And we danced, and we cried, and we laughed, and had a really really really good time! ✨scroll
Scroll through to see all of the table decor and floral details! Thank you @chefjojocooks for making the most delicious dinner, Keren @simply_perfect_events for working with me to make the night exactly how I envisioned it in my dreams, and Anastasia @sagharborflorist for the most insane flowers on the table, in the sky and in my pool! You 3 made the night pure magic and I’m so grateful. 💕💙
When you have this much love at home, it breeds strength, kindness, sensitivity, happiness and confidence. I wish this kind of profound emotion for everyone...its a blessing to have this for a decade, a true gift, and I don’t take that for granted. Scroll through... #decadetogether
The family we created 10 years later... all I need in life is this. They are my everything, the source of all my happiness and laughter. #fabfour
Saturday night we celebrated our 10 year anniversary under the stars with our girls, and our closest friends and family. We said new vows to one another, there was laughter and tears, and my backyard was filled with love. Hoping the next decade doesn’t go so quickly! More to come from this special night...
Sundays together, always...or at least until they say otherwise!
Those early evening beach walks with my girls are treasured memories... loving my new Fall @bashparis blazer for those chilly nights with my feet in the sand. #summerforever #ad
Tonight we are filled with so much love and life, as we celebrate my 10 year anniversary to their Dad under the new moon. Nothing makes me happier than being surrounded by my closest family and friends, so needless to say, I’m elated!
The day is finally here!!!!!!!!! Our first @thisisblackiris Fall/Winter collection is now live on www.shopblackiris.com (link in bio) We have been so excited to share these pieces with all of you because they are just SO beautiful. Everything is limited edition so go select your sizes before they run out, and please feel free to DM me for any help with sizing or fit. XO
Basically tossing out everything that currently exists in my bathroom with the exception of my @biologique_recherche_usa products because @live.natur showed me that each and every item I have is toxic! I’m so thankful that Ashley came over to help out, particularly with my kid’s skincare and bathing products. Read her full interview today and set up an appointment on www.mamaandtata.com
My feature today on @live.natur with Ashley Perkins is something we all need....a cleanse! Ashley is an expert in natural products, be it household items, skincare, or bath products. She has a natural option to replace all toxic items in your home, and is a pleasure to work with. Read her full interview today on www.mamaandtata.com today.
These piggyback days are definitely coming to an end!
Today’s feature is on one of my favorite shoe brands @alexandrebirman who I was lucky enough to collaborate with on our Black Iris FW Look Book. Their newest collection is the best yet, and you can see more today, along with their full interview on www.mamaandtata.com. #alexandrebirman #partner
Summer babe forever... nothing makes me happier than these long days, their magnificent sunsets, and listening to my children’s belly laughter staying up way past typical bedtime. Spontaneous lunches with great friends, trunk shows al fresco, romantic date nights with my husband, bonfires on the beach... #beachpeople
Very excited to see everyone for our next @thisisblackiris trunk show tomorrow located @themaidstonehotel from 11am-4pm. We will be hosting with friends @michellewaughny and @thelskcollection, so there is something for everyone. We will have both Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter merchandise for sale. Can’t wait to spend the afternoon with you at one of my favorite spots in the Hamptons...
Run don’t walk! My fave babe @tracyandersonmethod has recently launched her incredible athleisure line exclusive @barneysny and I couldn’t be prouder. I’m in love with the entire collection and the meaning behind it, spreading love and starting fresh. Tag your favorite workout buddies and tell them about her new collection, because for 1 month Tracy is generously giving all of my followers online access to her streaming! Link in bio...
It’s a scorcher! Ten degrees warmer than yesterday, didn’t think that was even possible. Keep the kiddos inside today, yesterday my babies were very dizzy and dehydrated at the end of the day, I was force feeding them coconut waters.
That moment she went from my little girl to my best friend. All of a sudden she is staying up late, reading the news with me in the morning, hanging with the adults, chatting with me about absolutely everything, and just gets it! Coolest girl I know, and proud as hell to be her Mom! #freezetime
Just to be clear, I want to make sure you all know that I have been trying to like your photos on @instagram for the past 2 days and my account isn’t working. Apparently this is a “thing” and they are trying to “fix it,” but please don’t be insulted if you don’t see those ♥️s for a few days, I very much love all of your content, and hope this is resolved soon. Also please comment if this is also happening to you!
Anyone who knows me well, knows this is my typical mood!
That time I waited patiently for my husband to be ready so we could go out... Just kidding, that’s never happened in life but seemed like that’s what I was doing in this picture from last night.
Picking up all of my local salad ingredients for the weekend. This one is best spent at home because you can hardly move on the road, so stocking up. Enjoy the fireworks, festivities and all things 🇺🇸!
I couldn’t be happier to share @judithdesireeskintherapie with all of you. My best recommendation in the Hamptons, and she deserves it! Her hands are like magic, and she keeps my skin glowing despite my love of the sun. Judith, so happy to have you, mostly for your heart and friendship, but also, for your insanely amazing facials!
Today’s feature is on my favorite esthetician out east and her new spa that recently opened in Sag Harbor @judithdesireeskintherapie. Judith has helped keep my skin hydrated and healthy every summer, using her Biologique Recherche methods and products, and I’m so excited to share her with all of you. She also has a heart of gold! Check out her feature today on www.mamaandtata.com
Trying to get used to these “alone” days...today my husband and I had a lunch date, which basically never happens! He’s the sweetest, I think he knew I was feeling a bit sad without the girls and he definitely made it better. Imagine when they go to sleep away camp! I’ll be in a massive depression.
My kids started camp yesterday, which was really hard for me since I had them to myself everyday for the past few weeks. They, of course, loved it! My favorite is when they come home and I put them in the car to go grab ice cream, and they start singing every word to every song on the radio in harmony. No more babies, full blown kids.
We are so excited for our @thisisblackiris Hamptons trunk shows to begin! This Wednesday, July 3, from 12-4pm we will be @serenaandlily Beach Shack in Wainscott with @tenoverten and @theculinistas. Come shop the collection with us, we look forward to seeing everyone. Special thanks to @hamptonsmag for the beautiful feature in this week’s issue, appropriately titled “The Girls of Summer.”
I’m SO missing these nights eating in all of these dreamy places with my girls. They had the best time staying out late with us every night consuming as much pizza, pasta and gelato as possible. Take me back...
So here is what you’ve all been asking for... my itinerary for the Amalfi Coast. In Capri, I hike the nature path starting @lafontelinacapri and go all the way up to the tower at the top of Capri, then jog down to the marina. We love lunch @lafontelinacapri and @ilriccioanacapri, dinner at the Lemon Tree and @auroracapri. The shopping is great, but I typically shop Italian designers on the island like @miumiu and @prada because they have a different selection. Onto Nerano... there are 3 of my favorite restaurants in the world for lunch @ristoranteloscoglio, @concadelsogno and @quattropassi_nerano, the hike up through town and into the mountains is a beautiful spot to view wild flowers, and there is a great beach at the bottom. My kids love swimming there after lunch, and climbing the rocks. Next up is Positano, my favorite of the bunch. I love hiking up to the path of the gods, and suggest it to everyone. My favorite restaurants for lunch are @ilsanpietrodipositano downstairs, @villatreville beach club, and @daadolfopositano. For dinner we love @lesirenuse @ilsanpietrodipositano upstairs on the terrace, @chezblackpositano in the port, @villatreville in the hotel, and a bit further up the mountain @ristorante_la_tagliata and @donnarosapositano. My favorite shop is @emporiosirenuse for beach covers and bathing suits. Moving right along to Amalfi, and particularly up top in Ravello, you can do the hike up the stairs from the bottom to the top. For dinner Trattoria Da Cumpa’ Cosimo is the best. We also love visiting the gardens @belmondhotelcaruso.
Last night in Capri, so of course one last family dinner at our favorite @auroracapri for their thin crust pizza! I’m so happy we took all of these photos to document such beautiful memories because just looking back at my pictures puts a huge smile on my face. Always, always take pictures, even though the men typically hate it...do it anyway!
This man, the love of my life, gave our family such a beautiful, special, magical vacation that we will all remember forever. He is surrounded by women, and he showers us with love, encouragement and support on a daily basis. He is remarkable in every way, and I’m so grateful that he is mine. Honey, if you google me today, THANK YOU for the trip of a lifetime! Also, Leelee took this picture, so @grantfriedmanphoto you may be out of a job soon... JK you’re stuck with me forever!
Taking you guys with me on our family vacation to the Amalfi coast. I look forward to this trip all year, being in the place we love most, spending quality time together, eating all of our favorite foods, and hiking in these beautiful mountains. We all rise at the same time, and sleep at the same time, and every moment is together. Follow along on my stories, and I promise to give a full guide by the end of the trip.
The incredible chefs @rosiesamagansett brought us into the kitchen to show us their magic. You both are spectacular and we are so excited to dine with you all summer long. Also, this was Leelee’s first soda...ever! Everything’s better in a glass bottle!
Today’s feature is on my favorite new farm to fork restaurant in the Hamptons, @rosiesamagansett. Here with co-owner Farmer Frank who gave us a sneak peek of this family friendly space with the most innovative, delicious, seasonal menu. Ask for the special Rose infused merengue for dessert!
